Top Shot: The Love of Big Mama | Photograph by Girish Londhe
#YourShotPhotographer Girish Londhe captured this tender moment between a mother giraffe and her calf in Maasai Mara. Your Shot Producer David Y. Lee writes, “Beautiful and tender moment that you documented here Girish. I love it. Great job using the 600mm lens, the long glass compresses your frame and shooting at f/4 helps make the foreground and background out of focus, allowing for my attention to focus on the two giraffes and their love for one another. Well done.” This image was selected for the Daily Dozen on August 13, 2018.
